How to disable Command-Space bar for Spotlight?

This isn't specific to Mavericks. I've had this issue with my previous OSs too. Is there anyway to disable the key combination of Command + Space bar that is used to open the Spotlight menu? I can't tell you how many times I've inadvertently tapped this combination while typing. If you're not looking at the screen, and you trigger this combination, you discover that you have inadvertently entered the last eight or nine words into Spotlight's search field instead of into your document, Mail, etc. Then, in order to get back to your document and leave Spotlight, you must click on it (the document, etc.) and retype those words again. I'd love to find a fix for this! Any help would be very much appreciated!

Kurt,
I had no idea, obviously, how close a solution to this truly vexing issue was! Thank you 100 x's! You REALLY made my day!

    How do I set the shortcut to space bar for the hand tool in illustrator cc?

    Thanks Larry, Mavericks OS. I managed to fix it by quitting Illustrator and reopening it. I have no idea why there was a problem in the first place, it just stopped working with the space bar shortcut and replaced it with a random alphabet.

  • When Firefox is open the zoom function (option/command/space bar) does not work in Adobe programs (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator)

    Mac OS X 10.6.7
    CS 5.5
    When Firefox is open the zoom function (option/command/space bar) does not work in Adobe programs (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator). This happens only when Firefox is open and when I close it the zoom functions work fine again without having to restart the applications.
    This is intermittent but happens quite frequently each day if Firefox is active.

    MDN doesn't mention -chrome being used for ordinary web pages: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options#Chrome
    When I use
    firefox.exe -chrome about:permissions
    I get a usable window, but zoom doesn't work as you noted.
    How about using an intermediate page and window.open() for the target page? You can (mostly) restrict the chrome of windows opened that way, but it will leave behind the intermediate window...

  • How to disable the vibration feature for the Alarm?

    How to disable the vibration feature for the Alarm?

    Hi guys , because we have no answer to our issue how to take off the vibration when alarm is on , and our other profiles like ringtones, messages , reminders and so on we need to keep them on vibrate mode , the best solution is to install a free application from store called "alarmed " ; I did put it down on my phone and now i can use the alarm clock without any vibration at all ! That's the answer to our issue , before Apple is going to find a solution !
    Personally , I don't think is going to be fix it soon , as long as the apple script made for pop ups is general one !
    Good luck everyone

  • How to disable Command-F1 toggle display

    This has been asked before but it was years ago and never answered. I want to disable Command-F1 toggling between mirroring and extended desktop modes on my 2 20" Apple Cinema displays. HOW can I do this? Or is it even possible?

    Use KeyRemap4Macbook (now known as Karabiner). It takes a while to learn how to use it, but it's very powerful. The following custom setting in private.xml works for me to simply disable this keyboard shortcut:
         <item>
              <name>Disable Mirroring Shortcut</name>
              <identifier>private.disable_mirroring_shortcut</identifier>
              <autogen>--ConsumerToKey-- ConsumerKeyCode::BRIGHTNESS_DOWN, VK_COMMAND, KeyCode::VK_NONE</autogen>

  • How to disable internal TNEF format for mail message?

    for exchange 2007/2010
    my configuration is as follows:
    1. i've added a RoutingAgent, that catches every message that its subject contains
    a specific word, then - re-routes it into a dummy domain (dummy.com for example).
    2. i've added SendConnector that catches dummy.com in the address space, and
    routes it to a smtp listener.
    If i send mails from outlook client to another user in the domain, it seems
    that outlook wraps the smtp request in TNEF format (where the body and attachments are replaced with winmail.dat file).
    If i add a recipient which is outside of the exchange domain, the smtp request is sent well in a regular MIME format.
    can i somehow change the internal handling to simple MIME format? i need to
    relay it to an external IP...
    i tried to disable it in "Remote transport" - didnt work, because i'm routing
    those internal mails.
    thanks!

    Hi,
    Please refer the following post about how to disable TNEF in exchange 2010 server:

  • How to disable tiny status bar from grabbing touches

    My app runs in landscape mode. I have done some tests on detecting touches, and in my view, which covers the entire screen, there is a sliver of the screen that is not returning touch events; this sliver of the screen corresponds to top say 24 pixels of the screen, where the batter life indicator and other things go. my view covers the entire screen and I want to have full screen control, but am losing these touches, probably because some higher priority listener is getting the events; how can I disable this status bar so I can get the touches?

    Same problem.
    After testing on the device the problem persists.
    I know from testing other applications that it IS possible to use the WHOLE screen for your own application.
    Just I don`t know whats going wrong here.
    Will probably check back tomorrow with my view-hierarchy and more details, maybe together we can find out what the problem is.

  • How to disable tabs in titlebar for all users?

    I want to disable tabs in title bar for all users, because looks ugly http://i57.tinypic.com/33nkm77.png
    I type to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\local-settings.js
    pref("browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar", false);
    It doesn't work, but any other options in this file works fine.
    Setting with about:config works fine, but only for currrent user.

    I think that preference refers to what happens when you have Firefox maximized and you do not display either the classic menu bar or the title of the page in that area: the tabs slide up to the top.
    I agree the double-high blue area is irritating. To modify that, I think you need to do one of these:
    * Change the Windows XP color theme (I always preferred Silver)
    * Create a custom style rule to modify the appearance of the tab bar (so the blue does not show through it)
    * Find a Firefox theme that fixes that area (e.g., [https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/themes/])
    I haven't researched the second and third options in detail.

    Hi everybody,
    Currently, I have a problem that need your help for my company

    I found out and apply some solutions from internet but it cannot be solved

    I think it may solve my problem. But how to do it??? I need your help from all of you
    Thanks for your support!!!!

    Hi,
    Let's verify your issue. Did you want to disable USB storage device?
    If yes, try this:
    1. If you have not ever already done so, you must connect a USB storage device
    to the computer now, and wait until Windows installs it and displays it in the Computer window with an assigned drive letter, then
    disconnect it.
    2. Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type
    regedit, and press Enter.
    3. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.
    4. In Registry Editor, navigate to the location below:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR
    5. In the right pane of USBSTOR, double click on Start to modify it.
    6. Type in 4, click on OK.
    7. Close Registry Editor windows.

  • How to disable end user personalisation for all webdynpro application.

    Dear Experts,
    I have a requirement where I have to disable the end user personalization of each and every
    webdynpro application in my server.
    I know how to disable the personalization of a single application or a single component, but my requirement is to disable the personalization of all applications.
    Request you to please suggest.
    Warm Regards,
    Upendra Agrawal

    Hi,
    As per SAP help,
    Customizing: User-Independent, Client-Wide Modifications
    While a single user u2013 during a personalization process u2013 can manipulate his or her own settings, an administrator has the option of executing Customizing settings for all users. Technically, this procedure is not different from personalization; both take place at runtime of an application. The difference lies in the range of the settings. In addition, for these global settings an application must run in a special administration session. This is always automatically the case if an application was started in the portal in the preview session. Independently of the portal, you can start an application in the following manner from within the workbench in administration mode:
    Double-click the name of the application in the object list.
    In the Web Dynpro Applications menu in the upper, left-hand corner of the Workbench window, choose  Test  Execute in Admin Mode .
    The configuration mode is passed to an application as the sap-config-mode=X URL parameter.
    Note
    All the adjustments made by the administrator in admin mode are stored as client-specific. Presently no option is available for structuring smaller user groups on an administrative basis. Since cross-client adjustment applies to the respective configuration, the structuring of smaller groups can be implemented currently through the maintenance of different configurations.
    End of the note.
    You start personalization by calling up the context menu for the respective UI element in your application. In the corresponding context menu for an administrator (that is, with URL parameter sap-config-mode=X), in addition to the standard settings administrators have the option within a UI element container to sort either single lines (Grid, Matrix aund RowLayout) or single elements (FlowLayout).
    Note
    Administrators require special authorization for client-wide modifications. This can be a developer authorization or the special authorization S_WDR_P13N. You cannot create configurations at design time with this authorization, but you can make modifications at runtime.
    End of the note.
    These modifications are valid for all users but take place in the current client only.
    Thanks,
    Chandra

    Hi Yan,
    What's the oracle product you are using it and if you want to avoid the digest authentication,you can remove the CLIENT-CERT defined in the auth-method of web.xml  in the application and it will either fall back to FORM based or Basic authentication based on which is configured in the application
    <login-config>
      <auth-method>CLIENT-CERT,BASIC</auth-method>
      </login-config>
